Continuing to Grow: Royal Norfolk Show Horticultural Area 2019

  • Developing from an exciting first year
  • Including the themes for the Royal Norfolk Show 2019: Wellbeing, Tourism and Volunteering
  • Want to encourage more organisations to be involved with this exciting opportunity


2018 saw the introduction of a new era for the Royal Norfolk Show Horticulture Area when it was transformed into a unique and interactive community hub. This period of change is set to continue for 2019 with plans to make the area bigger and better than ever!

The Royal Norfolk Agricultural Association (RNAA) will be continuing to promote and encourage engagement with all things horticultural in the new and exciting area with some further improvements thanks to the sponsors; The Clydesdale and Yorkshire Banking Group.

Norfolk and Norwich Horticultural Society will be back with their fantastic floral marquee full of show flowers, fruit and vegetables along with other great displays. The entertainment marquee will included in the area will be an even bigger, immersive and interesting space with a full programme which will entertain and educate show visitors. The area will also be benefitting from food and drink supplied by local provider, Urban Jungle.

The themes for the Royal Norfolk Show 2019 are Wellbeing, Tourism and Volunteering which will be endorsed by the Horticultural Area in a variety of ways including showcasing charities and community groups and demonstrating local horticultural organisations with an investment in Norfolk

The developing and exciting space will include even more show and school gardens than last year, as well as many trade stands and exhibitions from trendy houseplants to perfect perennials.

The RNAA would like to invite local schools, projects and charities to showcase their gardening activities by designing their own show gardens and having a chance to exhibit at the Royal Norfolk Show 2019.

Ellen Mary, the Royal Norfolk Show Horticulture Co-ordinator, says ‘This is a great opportunity for children to get their hands dirty and enjoy having fun in the garden as well as showing how gardens offer an opportunity for communities to take part in projects and develop their local areas.’

Applications for gardens at the Royal Norfolk Show 2019 are now open and the RNAA would love to hear from you before 31 January 2019 by emailing Ben Hope on ben.hope@rnaa.org.uk
